Humax HDR-FOX T2 Freeview+HD Recorder

Rating: ★★★★½


Externally, the HDR-FOX is bigger and has a shinier case than its older model and overall has a very pleasant style.

It has a sleek front panel with a round button in the centre, which is surrounded by a ring of LEDs and this is for turning the recorder on and off.

When the box is in standby, the ring is orange. When it’s on, the light is blue and a red ring means the machine is recording.

Picture and sound quality

The picture and sound quality on the HDR-FOX T2 are both superb. HD channels look totally stunning and the Humax relays all of their broadcast quality onto your TV.

If your TV is 1080p capable, the box will upscale SD and HD video to this format. In future, if broadcasters do use 1080p, this box will also be capable of relaying that to your TV.

Sound on all channels was pretty impressive too.

The menu display is equally impressive with clear options and easy to view listings.

Home networking and media playback

You can view photos and video or listen to music from external USB devices, or via your home network.

One superb feature the Humax offers is the ability to share video with other Humax devices. In fact, other devices might be able to access SD content, but HD is strictly only available to other Humax hardware. This means you can record a show on your lounge HDR-FOX, then watch it upstairs, in bed, on your HD-FOX.


  • Home Networking Facility
  • Media Playback Functions
  • Great Picture and Sound Quality
  • Sleek Design


  • Slightly pricey compared to other models


Despite being slightly pricey compared to other models, the Humax HDR-FOX T2 is an attractive and usable player that has top-notch picture and sound quality. Not only that, but it’s also an easy-to-use PVR, too.
